Here are adjustable nibs 6-10. Still looking for #3 and #5. One #9 is a nice italiac, which I believe is not very common.

 

I've got a #3 on a ladies doric. It's 18ct and marked" Eversharp, made in the US of America" which seems unusual to me. My guess is it was for the export market. Your set looks very impressive !! I did a (fairly ordinary) review of that pen and its in the review section.

A very enviable collection you have. Especially the italic one is something. Sometimes I ponder buying a medium or broad adjustable nib and regrind it to an italic - but something tells me that it would be a sin. And so I keep looking and looking and looking... and slowly realize that as I am not willing to give some $600+ for a pen I might as well stop looking...

 

Anyway it seems like you use all these nibs in full flex mode. Is that so, or you do adjust the flex sometimes?

 

Thanks for sharing, Zed

Thanks for your kind words. Honestly, I really have not used them much. I only used that #6 for a few times. The italic one was only used once by me. (what a shame:)

Thanks for your reply Jun.

 

I have to admit that the answer nevertheless started me somewhat, as I tend to write with all my pens, and also made me wonder what it is you write with. It must be fine pens/nibs indeed once they are able to overshadow those pens/nibs above...

Oh, I often used an OS SHeaffer balance with a very flexible lifetime nib (yes, factory flex!), like below. I rotate them, sometimes using a Parker 51 and sometimes a PFM. But other than that flexible sheaffer nib, no other nibs I am using are as nice as the ones I showed here.

Hmm, interesting. So you are into special very special nibs! Well me too, for I have 3 OS Sheaffer Balances with flexible nibs - one of them is just as flexible as the one on your picture...

 

Well one more time thanks for sharing these fine nibs, Zed

Ummmm...kinda stupid question. How does this work?

You slide the little metal thing on the nib up and down to control the flexibility of the nib (so when the metal ring is down closer to the tip, there is little openning of the tines, thus no flexibility).

Uh-huh, thank you :)
